I'm finding this really interesting because as I recall, I created the Balalatu letters via the old "doodle in the notebook and pick out the shapes I like" method; I certainly took no conscious design or influence from any existing script. So it's fascinating to read what other people think it looks like!

Please, Andrew, be my guest! I'm very flattered that you like it enough to want to play with it! And if you do, please share your results, either here or privately. I'd be very interested to see what you do with it. Thomas
